This house has without doubt, the best position of any property in Manyana and arguably one of the best along the entire South Coast. This charming older style holiday house is only 10 meters or so away from the surf break, and a 2 minute stroll to the sand.
It occupies the northernmost position on the south side of Inyadda Beach, with uninterrupted views of the entire length of the beach, bushland and sand dunes to the north. it also has incredible elevated views of the beach and ocean to the east, as well as to the southern headland of Manyana beach. On a clear day you can see all the way to the southern headland of Jervis bay. Every bedroom and all the living areas have stunning views of the beach or ocean.
The house has a very private and secluded feel, nestled on a low cliff, surrounded by mature trees and bushland. You can watch the surf, the uncrowded beach, and enjoy the frequent sightings of abundant wildlife such as dolphins, whales, rare giant sea eagles, hawks, cormorants, many species of parrots and tiny native birds (honey eaters, blue wrens, and the tiny endangered bronze cuckoo) as well as the occasional kangaroo or brown possum strolling past..
The house is cool in summer due to its proximity to the ocean, benefiting from even the slightest ocean breeze on a sweltering day. Due to its unobstructed exposure to the sun from east in the morning, the north until the mid afternoon, and the west until sunset, the house is warm and cosy even on the coldest days in mid winter. There are ample large heaters for the cold winter nights.
The house was constructed in the 50s with a 2nd story added in the late 70s. The house was re-partitioned, re-carpeted and repainted in the mid 90s. The open plan living and dining room has a timber floor, which is easy to clean and hard to damage, making for a worry free holiday with kids. Whilst the house has not had any major architectural upgrades and is a classic beach shack, it is basic, but clean and family friendly.
There are 3 large bedrooms plus a common area with 2 single bunks, 2 bathrooms, an open plan kitchen with enough pots and pans to satisfy the family would be Masterchef, a kettle style BBQ ideal for roasting whole legs of lamb or large fish, a large timber dining table to comfortably seat 10, as well as an open plan lounge/dining area, with 2 comfortable, chocolate coloured suede lounges, which are stain resistant and easy to keep clean.
The 2 queen beds and 1 king size bed(one in each bedroom) are all of a high quality. There are also 2 single bunks in the large upstairs bedroom together with the king size bed plus another 2 single bunks in a common area in between the upstairs bathroom and the other bedrooms. The house can comfortably accommodate 2 couples with up to 5 or 6 children or up to 3 couples and 4 singles. This configuration makes it an extremely flexible and affordable holiday option in one of the most sought after seaside locations.

Manyana is a delightful South Coast township located less than 3 hours from both Sydney and Canberra.
The house is located at No 1 Sunset Strip, overlooking the magnificent and unspoilt Inyadda Beach, which rarely has more than 20 or so people on it, and is often completely deserted, even in the middle of summer. Inyadda, backbeach or Bendalong beach as it is often referred to has many fantastic sand breaks
Additionally, there is a choice of 4 beaches/surfing breaks all within 5 minute drive including the world famous Green Island point break and the breaks on Monument Beach and Flat Rock, which are protected from the southerly wind and offer a great surfing option when the swell is too big on the South facing beaches.
There are also still water options at Washers Womans Beach and the Boat Ramp, more suitable for the family and small children. No matter in which direction the wind is blowing, a sheltered beach can be found locally.
There are many beach and bushwalking options including a one hour walk to Sussex Inlet, swimming in protected turquoise coloured inlets, snorkelling, fishing and boating on Lake Conjola or Berringer Lake, lots of great pushbike tracks etc. A short trip to Pidgeon House Mountain, located south of Ulladulla or the famous Mogo Zoo are also popular activites in the area.
